LOCAL ENTREPRENEURS SUPPORT HIGH SCHOOL SCHOLAR ATHLETES AT ARIZONA BALLOON CLASSIC
February 13, 2019
PHOENIX — The National Football Foundation Valley of the Sun Chapter and Vitae Sports & Entertainment would like to share its many thanks for the generous donations made by The Beer Connect and Saddle Mountain Brewing Company. These sponsoring organizations pledged to support a fundraising effort at the 8th Annual Arizona Balloon Classic, with a combined donation of over $4,000 for amateur football at all levels. These contributions will help honor the traditions of the game of football at the amateur level; to recognize academic and athletic excellence as well as community-school achievements at the college, high school and youth levels; and to conduct programs that further the character-building qualities of the game and fulfill a demonstrated need, especially to the underserved population.
From all of us, we thank you to all sponsors for their leadership in supporting local valley high scholar athletes.
